It’s an extremely liberating experience to realize you are already seen and known for who you really are. But even after many of us learn we have this in Christ, we stop walking in it with our friends and community. I’ve seen repeatedly seen this lately and been reminded how enslaving it is.

We’ve seen a lot of people place their faith in horrible candidates for rulers lately. This video of this talk given from a political science professor to a collegiate ministry is an excellent reminder of who has always been the perfect ruler we’re longing for.
Young men have many reasons we may not receive the trust and leadership we think we should have, but I’ve recognized from failures both in myself and others I’ve lead, two extremely common and vital traits we must demonstrate rightly to be the leader we think we can be.
When it comes to sharing our faith, some of us should reconsider our approach a bit. The older I get the more I can look back on times which are quite embarrassing despite how noble my intentions were, and yet, I realize how much of it I caused myself in pride and foolishness.
What if I told you that your social media reads like someone who doesn’t want to and maybe even couldn’t be friends with a lost person? We all love pithy theological quotes, but we must make sure we’re doing what we’re actually called to do, and it isn’t to convict others.
We love creating and we love a well created item or experience around here! This little project was and is a terrific example of this. After all, it’s working with God’s very word as the material, so it’s already awesome! Did you order a set? Will you be ordering?
We never want to revel in someone else’s failure, but we do want to learn from it. We can learn a lot from the realm of sports and one of the strongest lessons: remember, pride comes before the fall… and like this video shows, sometimes, quite literally. Much work ahead, and not for our glory!
Our natural hearts warp authority into something it actually isn’t. However, when we meditate on how Jesus came to us and gained his authority, we get both a deeply challenging and extremely encouraging glimpse of authority that’s undeniably helpful and practically applicable to our lives.
You may have heard about “the gospel” but do you know what it really means when people use this term? Here is an overview of not only what the word means, but an fly-over of the entire historical story this word has become the title for. A great starting point for understanding the gospel!
You’re dating a girl but then breakup cause you’re “too different”. Sounds decent, right? Society and churches allow it. Our fellow fooled bros are cool with it. However, brothers that know better need to speak up about this, because our big brother, Jesus, taught us differently.
I’ve found men have many reasons for why they don’t blog, but here are some unarguably awesome reasons why you should probably get started, now. Blogging has changed my life for over a decade. It will do the same for you.
Are you maturing in the Holy Spirit? You may think you’ve heard “fruit of the spirit” talk before, but I’ve found not many have heard it this way. Take it from a recovering conman: I was once a poser and I still know how to fake it; so here’s how to sniff it out.
This short video stirs both sobering questions and a bit of sorrow. We must ask ourselves some important questions about whether we’re photoshopping a false ideal in our hearts and minds that will feed a hurtful cycle, rather than guarding ourselves, our brothers, and our sisters.
My wife and I recently stumbled into a conversation on the great deal of loss, grief, and pain that comes from being intimate with someone on this side of eternity. It’d be easy to think we should just avoid all of it sometimes. Should we?
Do you continually chase after things you think will bring you life? Jesus helps us out of our state of eternal death, and he also seems to know we need help staying out of our grave clothes too!
I believe there’s one and only one way to know if you are truly loving and being loved. If you don’t know this, or the person you are expecting to love you doesn’t know this, then you can be sure you aren’t actually loving or being loved.
